A password-protected directory is a folder that can't be accessed unless the proper login details are provided. This can be a whole Internet site or simply a single page which is situated in a subfolder. If you attempt to open this type of a directory, you will see a web browser pop-up in which you have to input a username as well as a password. If you type in the right ones, you'll be able to continue exploring the content with no need to do anything extra. If the login details are not correct, however, you will see information that you aren't permitted to see the content. If this function is active, you will not be able to open a file even if you have a direct link. The function is extremely handy if you need to limit the access to some content or if you work on a website and you do not want visitors to be able to access it before it's ready.
